The Book is Talking to You – Using An Audio Version of the Course Textbooks to Support Learning

By Shlomit Zerachovitz and Michal Zuker

Abstract

The Open University of Israel's major study method is self-study using printed course-books. In order to address students ' diverse learning needs, an audio format of a few course-books was also provided. A digital questionnaire was distributed to assess students ' satisfaction, trace their studying performance and document the learning process. Having the course materials on a portable player meets students' needs to be efficient learners. Students with learning disabilities prefer to have the material in multiple forms. Audio-books may also facilitate the learning of students whose second language is Hebrew and of auditory learners who prefer verbal to written information modes
